Tales from the top shelf: Mount Gay Extra Old Rum

I've been keeping this rum around for when the rum lovers that I know come for a visit.  It has a sweet vanilla flavor, and a warm oaky finish.  The rum is aged in bourbon barrels, which adds some nice spice.  When you exhale, you get banana.  If you are a rum lover, this ones for you.  I'm not a rum lover, and I still think that it's pretty good.

Cost: $40
Grade: B+

  1. Agreed. I visited the distillery in Barbados once. Their "Extra Old" is the really good stuff. The version they send here is my 2nd favorite rum ever though.
